From Ashley of Spread Love Events:If Kate Spade and Pottery Barn planned a party together, we imagined it might look a little something like this! We dressed up our table in dots, classic stripes and gold, and Celsia Florist blew us away with the gorgeous floral arrangements of peonies, anemones and ranunculus. We designed the stationary and chalk board to carry through the theme, bringing a whimsical element to this elegant and luxurious table setting. The chairs and bench were collected from our favourite Vancouver local design store, The Cross (aren’t the carved chairs amazing?). And as a special gift to all the brides we go the chance to visit with at the show, paperwhite bulbs were packaged in hand stamped muslin bags with instructions on how to let them grow. It was a fun day filled with gold, gorgeous blooms and blushing brides to be.

San Francisco Conservatory Wedding

Garden Weddings

Photos by:

With well over four years blogging beautiful wedding after beautiful wedding, I’m yet to come across a more perfect venue to get married than a place called the Conservatory of Flowers. The name alone exudes romance and whimsy! Andrea and JJ’s wedding captured by the talents of Delbarr Moradi was just that, with a pinch of modern and a dab of vintage. This foodie couple chose their favorite cheeses to make some yummy centerpieces!

From the bride, Andrea: We really wanted our wedding to be 100% reflective of us. Our personal style is a little vintage, a little modern, and a little non-traditional. We wanted to show our appreciation to our family and friends who were able to make it and have it be as comfortable and fun for them as possible. We lived in Seattle for a few years before our wedding and it holds a very dear place in our hearts. We wanted to pay homage to the city by incorporating some of our favorite things like cheese, salami, and coffee.

Our biggest DIY project was curating all of our centerpieces. We knew we didn’t want to do any floral centerpieces , due to the cost, so we had to get creative. We absolutely LOVE cheese and salami so we figured why not edible centerpieces! We bought $200 worth of natural slate from Lowes and we hand broke, washed, and sealed all of them. We adhered wooden feet and felt pads to all of them so they would be at varied heights. We also asked Fork & Spoon to get our favorite Salumi Salami and Beecher’s cheese for the centerpieces. We added a few of our other favorites and garnished with Cornichons, grapes, and olives. We absolutely loved them! We also were beyond lucky to have our cousin’s hand-make some treats for us. Dave and Amber McAuley made Cousin’s Beer that we served at the bar, and Genny McAuley took some of the beer and made homemade mustard as our favors. It was the most amazing gift =)

Any advice for brides planning their weddings now? Start early, stay organized, and have fun! When we started the wedding planning, I promised myself that I would stay completely present and enjoy the entire process. It is meant to be fun and exciting, not stressful. I started a spreadsheet and to do list and just started chipping away at it. I equated it to moving. You find yourself in a room full of boxes and its a little overwhelming trying to figure out which box to start with first, but once the first one is opened everything just starts falling into place.

From Michelle Edgemont: Today, let’s talk about dads. When I was a kid, I remember my dad would drink a lot of coffee and watch a lot of news, which at the time I thought was boring. Now, I ride the train with the strongest coffee I can find while reading the New York Times on iphone. The perfect gift package for anyone, especially dads, who appreciate a dash of news, strong coffee, and a delicious snack in the morning. For this gift package I included a coffee mug, strong coffee beans, a coffee spoon, biscotti, and a homemade gift card for the New York Times. Print out the gift tag and the homemade gift card for your personal use. To keep with the newspaper theme, I lined a black, metal basket with the Sunday edition of the Times. Before placing the items in the basket, crumble up a few pages of the newspaper to fill in the bottom and lift up all those great, little gift items.
